Studies on Multiplication of the Depth of Detectability Using y 11n Arrays

A basic parameter of all geophysical methods, including geoelectrics, is the depth of investigation (DI). A critical parameter in geophysical exploration has always been the depth from which knowledge can be accessed. This paper deals with the detectability depth (DD) of configurations of 2D electric resistivity tomography. In the presence of a given noise level, DD is the maximum depth from which a given model body is observable. This paper shows that there is a nearly linear relationship between the maximum value of their parameter-sensitivity (PS) maps and their DD values, based on previous DD measurements for traditional electrode arrays. We found that many of them have higher PSmax values than those of traditional arrays when analysing the PS maps of other arrays, as well. Therefore, these so-called γ arrays are supposed to also have larger DD values. This expectation has been verified by the executed DD calculations. Linear geoelectric arrays, where γ refers to the CPCP, are γ arrays Arrays have consistently generated higher DD values than the best traditional arrays if n is greater or equal to 2. The DD value of these arrays can be 2-3 times greater than the best value of the conventional array. Such an improvement in the DD value is particularly useful when the measurement space available is reduced, e.g. due to infrastructural conditions. Large-depth anomalies, for example, that are not seen by traditionally used arrays, can be detectable using γ-arrays, as numerical studies have also verified. In addition, these arrays require less measurement than most conventional arrays, which results in shorter measurement time. According to the above observations, the γ ⁇ arrays and particularly the γ ⁇ -, γ ⁇ – and γ ⁇ arrays can be a useful alternative to traditional arrays, especially in sites where the place available for measurements is limited (e.g. built-up areas), because they can provide information from greater depths. Measurements are mor with these arrays more Consuming less time
